Abuja - The Bayelsa State Government has offered automatic employment to ten best graduating students of the Bayelsa State College of Arts and Science, (BYCAS) in Elebele.
The students excelled in various areas of information and communications technology such as computer hardware maintenance, electrical installation, computer application as well as database management and administration.
The State Governor Seriake Dickson made the offer to the students while commissioning the college, which coincided with its maiden Graduation and Matriculation ceremony.
Governor Dickson, who was impressed with the students' outstanding performance, directed that six of the best graduating students be deployed to Government House in Yenagoa to demonstrate their skills in ICT.
He also directed the Ministry of Education to ensure immediate absorption of the graduates to teach in schools as there were job openings for teachers in all primary and secondary schools in the state.
Congratulating the 250 graduating students, the governor urged the Rector of the college, Dr Jeremiah Yabefa, to raise the standard of education higher in conduct, values and academics.
The governor said it was heartwarming to note that the implementation of his administration's educational policy in the re-establishment of the college had yielded positive results five years after the scrapping of the institution.
Dickson, who was accompanied by the Rwandan High Commissioner to Nigeria, Ambassador Joseph Habineza and Minister of Culture and Tourism, Chief Edem Duke, also took an inspection tour of the Computer Application and Network Engineering Laboratories of the college.
